Why Do You Need Postnatal Chiropractic Care?
There’s no doubt that bringing a new baby into the world is a beautiful thing. However, the journey can be a bit painful. You’ve just spent the better part of a year carrying life around inside you, a life that puts pressure on your spinal column and other areas.
Additionally, your body has to stretch and adapt. This natural preparation alone can lead to spinal misalignment, herniated discs, and sciatica. In short, it can cause pain and unseen issues.
Once the baby is here, the issues don’t stop. They can often get worse. For example, you’re still carrying your baby with arms instead of your belly. This weight can put more strain on the spinal column. Also, being weak from birth and nursing your baby often leads to bad posture in those moments.
All this pain and discomfort can stack up on top of new moms' emotions, leading to or exacerbating postpartum depression. That’s not to mention the fatigue it can also cause.
Benefits of Visiting Our Chiropractor
Many moms have found chiropractic care helpful in reducing or eliminating postpartum depression. Chiropractic care after childbirth has shown several benefits, some of which include:

- Faster postnatal recovery
